As our Software Engineer - RPG  (Previously RPG Analyst Programmer), you’ll develop a variety of solutions using RPGLE on the IBM i platform in an Agile product team guided by Product Owners.  You’ll contribute within a dedicated delivery team focused on servicing a key commercial partner.   Is this you?

Why come and join us?

Well, we pride ourselves on doing things a bit differently. We like to innovate and disrupt and we’re growing at a phenomenal rate, and we need your help to maintain and advance our tech priorities, and yes that includes our legacy system! Your proven experience in IBM i (iSeries) development using ILE RPG will be fundamental in the development of our IT solutions to meet business requirements and you’ll be producing well-structured and appropriately tested software that focuses on delivering the best customer experience. You’ll also support our existing applications by resolving errors in the software and/or providing assistance to customers using the software.
